The successor to the Nintendo Wii is named Wii-U (meaning 'We' and 'You'). Only the controller has been seen so far but already it looks awesome. The controller has a 6.2 inch screen meaning that you can play games on your TV or seamlessly switch to the pads screen should you want to go make a cuppa and dont wanna pause the game.
I'll post more info and screenshots when the Nintendo conference has finished.
